dc.description.abstract<p>The purpose of this study was to describe nutritional health of Deaf adults in terms of nutrition knowledge, eating patterns, and Body Mass Index (BMI).Fifty-seven Deaf adults in the Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona, metropolitan areas completed 3-day eating diaries, sections B and C of the General Nutrition Knowledge Questionnaire for adults, and were measured for height and weight for BMI. Analysis found an average score of 50% on the nutrition knowledge questionnaire, 33.10% of dietary calories came from fat; less than 1 serving of fruit per day and slightly more than one serving of vegetables per day and most were overweight (average BMI 26.90).. Results support the need for culturally appropriate nutrition education to increase nutrition knowledge, improve eating patterns and encourage healthy weights among Deaf adults.</p>
